When you hear Puerto Rican elopement, what do you envision? Typically, it’s white, sandy beaches + a flowy wedding dress, right? Today’s elopement inspiration is flipping the script with this infamous tropical elopement destination, and we’re loving every bohemian bit of it!
The unexpected is Old San Juan; a city built in 1521 that still has original doors, streets + walls. This elopement is set in Castillo San Cristóbal, a fortress in San Juan, and a National Historic Site. How powerful it is to see things from another perspective? We love the historic + regal venue of this bohemian elopement, and can’t wait to share all the stylish details!
Photographers Natasha + Rey from Phosphilic planned, design + photographed this day with only one objective in mind: present Puerto Rico as a place where you can always find warm weather + love. Let’s explore the unexpected!
Artful + Unconventional
The stationery suite by Lili Weds is colorful + unconventional in the best way. We love the mix of turquoise blues and earthy tones.
Bow to the Bohemian Queen
Bow to the queen. Wow! The bride stuns in that floral Rue de Seine wedding dress with fringe for days + an iconic, handmade crown.
Pampas Grass + Castle Views
Say ‘I do’ in a semicircle of locally foraged pampas grass! It’s boho-minimalist at its best.
